A Muslim group which has recently gathered fame for its successful cyberattacks on the Israeli army, Saudi army and Bin Laden’s backup company displayed a series of documents on Wednesday proving that it has shut down some of the highly secure servers in Israel belonging to the Israeli Aviation Authority after hacking and controlling the servers for months.
‘The Islamic Cyber Resistance Group’ said it has hacked Israel Aviation Authority (iaa.gov.il), gained access to its LAN, extracted highly sensitive and top secret information regarding domestic and international flight maps, flight plans, etc. and controlled the iaa servers for months.
“The Islamic Cyber Resistance Group is proud to add another one to its line of success and announces access to the LAN of Israeli aviation organization, in a move to render the fake legend of Israel’s security and invincibility obsolete,” the group said in a statement released on its website.
“By the grace of God, we could gain access to iaa.gov.il LAN and in addition to obtaining sensitive information, seized full control over the management panel,” it added.
The ICRG said it could wreak havoc on Israel by crashing every flying aircraft in Israel, but avoided doing so as ordered by Islam, implying that the Al-Qaeda or anyone else who caused the 9/11 attack were neither Muslims nor acting upon Koran and Islamic teachings.
“But as the world knows, killing women, children and innocent people is a profession exclusive to Israel and its neophytes, and we, as ordered by Islam, do condemn such moves and, thus, find it sufficient to release sensitive information to prove that we have had the access to the servers and downed the website,” declared the group.
The ICRG further declared that it has gained access to “the flight management plans and were able to make online changes to them. Also by gaining access to ATIS/VOLMET system, disruption in data communications (such as flight routing and weather conditions) between plane and ground stations was possible”.
The Muslim group said it had the servers and network of the IAA under control for months and downloaded a huge amount of data, analyzed and studied different modules of Israel’s air traveling and aviation systems. “This brought us valuable information regarding flight communication structures and processes in Israel.”
The ICRG has also released pages of documents information to display the veracity and authenticity of its claim. The publicized data includes domestic and international flight information Database, some of the flight briefing files which are only provided to pilots and control towers, management and flight routing software information, and weather condition maps (NOTAM).
The group said “at present all the data and information on the server has been wiped and the website is down”.

The ICRG said the hacking operation, called OP-Israel, was an act of reprisal for the Israeli killing of “Islamic Resistance martyrs Maysara Abu Hamdiya, HassanAbdulAlhlym al-Turabi and Rami Bajes Alzlbany”, the Palestinian prisoners who were killed in Israeli jails.
The ICRG came to raise its name among the best in the hacking industry after it downed the servers of the Saudi and Israeli armies as well as the Saudi Bin Laden Group of Companies, a main financial backup company of the terrorist Al-Qaeda network, in an operation in mid December in retaliation for the role the trio had played in the assassination of Hezbollah commander Hassan Hawlo Lakkis.
Haj Hassan Hawlo Lakkis, an Islamic Resistance leader, was assassinated in front of his home in St. Therese-Hadath on December 4, while he was on his way back from his work.
In the first operation, the Islamic Cyber Resistance Group said it hacked the Saudi army’s servers and extracted crucial information and data, including the full information and files of 1,000 Saudi officers and agents.
The Saudi army is believed to be supporting the Al-Qaeda and the Wahhabi Jihadists fighting against the Syrian army now.
In a second attack, the ICRG hacked the Bin Laden Group of Companies and extracted more than 7GB of its top secret information and intelligence, including 5,000,000 secret documents. The group said it hacked “1400 PCs and 70 Servers and gained full access to SBG Domain Control and Email Servers”.
In their third operation, the Muslim hackers infiltrated the servers of the Israeli army and extracted top secret intelligence and military information, including the personal files of hundreds of army officers, forcing Tel Aviv to shut down its army servers.
The Islamic Cyber Resistance Group said it has gained valuable intelligence in the hacking attack, named ‘Remember Hassan Lakkis Operation’.
The Muslim hackers said the personal files, including the postal addresses, E-mails, contact numbers, military codes, etc. of 2014 Israeli officers and intelligence agents, were a small part of the information and intelligence it had extracted from the Israeli army.
The Islamic Cyber Resistance Group did not affiliate itself with Hezbollah or any other party or country, and identified itself as a group of true Muslim believers who would not withdraw from the war on Israel and terrorism.
The group warned that it takes the Israeli Mossad secret service and the Al-Qaeda responsible for the assassination of the Hezbollah leader, adding that the war on these two accomplices will rage on.
